Movie Info

The animated stars of TV's The Flintstones make the leap to the big screen in this spoof of the spy genre. Because Fred Flintstone (voiced by Alan Reed Sr.) is the identical double of secret agent Rock Slag, he is enlisted by the Stone Age Secret Service to take over for Slag when the spy is injured. As a result, Fred, his wife Wilma (Jean vanDer Pyl), and their friends Barney (Mel Blanc) and Betty Rubble (Gerry Johnson) are sent to Paris, where Fred is ordered to find the head of the criminal organization SMIRK, the Green Goose. After following the Goose's trail to Rome, Fred and Barney are captured by the arch-villain, where it's up to Rock Slag to save the day.more

Audience Reviews for The Man Called Flintstone

Before I get into bashing The Man Called Flintstone I guess I should explain myself a bit. I actually hadn't seen this in years until most recently. I was actually a lover of this when I was very, very small but I hadn't seen it since then. Picking it up cheap, I was excited to see it again but ultimately let down when I realized just how mediocre it was... perhaps less than mediocre. What worked as a half hour cartoon definitely did not translate well to the big screen. To be fair, there are some fun ideas in here, but they're hampered with lame dialogue, horrendous LSD-induced animated sequences and plot-stopping musical numbers. Maybe this would have been better off as a TV special instead. Either way, it still doesn't hold up well at all. I give it credit because I enjoyed it as a child and because I love The Flintstones, but other than that, forget it. It's a good idea but executed poorly.
